Asnakech Worku
Asnaketch

Awesome Tapes From Africa do it again. The label’s newest treat comes courtesy of late Ethiopian singer, actress and iconoclast Asnakech Worku. Her Askanech LP was recorded in 1975 with the aid of ATFA favourite Hailu Mergia. Worku’s sparse, arid take on Ethio-jazz and song is augmented by her masterful playing of the krar (a kind of Ethiopian harp).
